What the judges are looking for

Overall, judges will be looking for evidence of great design, consumer appeal and a sense of luxury in the packs under review and will be asked to consider the following five aspects:
  • Quality and innovation in graphics, decoration, shape and structure;
  • Functionality;
  • Shelf stand-out;
  • How the pack adds value to the brand;
  • Luxury feel.

At least one example of the pack must be submitted (unless otherwise stated) for the judging day. If this needs to be returned, it is the responsible of the entrant to organise this.
